We have been enjoying the mountains and especially the town of Highlands for many years. We planned and built our dream home in 1998-99 after a great deal of thought and research. Our goal was to have a comfortable, warm and inviting home that could be enjoyed by our loving family and our wonderfully fun friends. It is exactly what we had envisioned, and we feel fortunate to be able to share it with others.

Rob Owen purchased this house in 1999

It is close to Atlanta, our primary home, and the temperature is typically 10 degrees cooler. Highlands is known for its excellent restaurants, shopping and outdoor activities.

Close to town, a 15 minute walk, the open, spacious floor plan and professionally decorated rooms are designed for comfort and relaxation. It affords proximity to town plus the peaceful privacy of a cul-de-sac location. Great walking and hiking in the neighborhood.

Amazing, Beautiful, Well Appointed Highlands Rental!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I along with good friends from Houston, Tx spent four lovely nights in this truly amazing home! I was impressed by the pictures and reviews of this house, but let me just say.....they do not do it justice. You have to see it for yourself! In over 30 years I have never rented a house in Highlands with the amenities and conveniences of Maplewood. It has every convenience of home and more! From the spotless condition of the home and the luxury linens to the well stocked, gourmet kitchen, it is just perfect!!! The weather was chilly enough for a fire in the huge stone fireplace and the front porch was piled high with firewood. The evenings were delightful and we enjoyed cocktails out on the screened porch surrounded by the quiet and beautiful hardwoods changing colors. The landscaping here is magnificent and I can't wait to go back in the spring and summer when everything is blooming.

The owner is so gracious and accommodating and was just a text or phone call away when I had a question. That was very reassuring. We had only been home a few days, when our deposit refund check came in the mail! The owner was prompt and thorough with every detail and we enjoyed our experience of renting from him.

In closing, I will just add one more comment...If you rent this house, you will not be disappointed and you WILL want to go back!

Looking forward to next time!

Fabulous home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and another ,couple enjoyed this ,wonderful home over Thanksgiving holiday. we couldn't have been more comfortable or ,had a better house to celebrate in. It is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for the kitchen and serving. After a big dinner, we built a fire and all grabbed books from a huge supply and chilled out. You would never be disappointed in this lovely house. The owner is so nice and helpful. Everything was perfect when we arrived. I will be back for sure. What a treasure this holiday was.

Secluded setting with lush gardens and beautiful views. The home is well appointed and decorated in a comfortable, rustic fashion with a large family room perfect for relaxing together. The kitchen is equipped with every convenience and the porches and decks invite you to enjoy the spectacular mountain air and sunshine. We had such a wonderful time!

Great house, everything is perfect

  • 5 of 5
What a great house, a great setting and the pictures don't do it justice. It is such a warm and comfortable home, everything is top of the line and the owner is so nice. Told us to use anything in the cabinets or pantry which is so nice to not have to buy every spice and a pound of butter for muffins in the morning. The two porches are just great, all of the furniture is comfortable and the house is decorated very nicely. I don't think we would rent any other house. I guarantee you will like both the house and the owner and his attention to EVERY detail.

August 2011 at Maplewood

  • 5 of 5
Maplewood is an extraordinary home - well designed, well built, well furnished and well equipped, A covered front porch leads to a large entry hall with a stand full of umbrellas and walking sticks, a reverse bowfront chest, a powder room and stairs to the second floor bedrooms. The hall leads to a light, open great room, with three sets of double French doors leading to a rear terrace and a screened porch with comfortable sitting and dining areas. The living and dining areas look like a page out of County Life - large comfortable sofas and chairs, beautiful rugs, Staffordshire lamps, dark oak tables, lovely paintings, a large stone fireplace, floor-to-ceiling bookcases filled with interesting books and tables stacked with magazines and books on local history and architecture. The living room cabinets house a large television with DVD player and a stereo system which is connected to speakers throughout the house.

Adjacent to the living room is a formal dining room with an oak dining table, handsome old Windsor chairs and an antique sideboard, a breakfast room and a large kitchen that literally has everything - a Vikling stove plus separate convection, microwave and toaster ovens, a Subzero refrigerator, an Asko dishwasher, two sets of China - Wedgewood and pottery, cabinets full of bowls and serving pieces, a bar area with dozens of glasses and stems, and a knifebox full of sharp Wusthof knives. The bedrooms are spacious, with windowseats and large closets and baths, and are beautifully furnished.

The house is on a quite cul-de-sac in a very nice neighborhood, a short, easy drive to the Mountain Fresh Grocery and restaurants on the east end of town. The front and rear yards are totally private, with clipped hemlock hedges and beds full of creamy hydrangea, gold and black rudbeckia and a variety of ferns and hostas, surrounding stonework and natural stone outcroppings. There is parking for two cars on the main level plus a two-car garage on the lower level.

The owner is gracious, helpful and accomodating, the neighbors are friendly and the house was spotless when we arrived. Maplewood is a beautiful house in a beautiful setting. Our friends were amazed that so nice a home was available for rent. Highlands is the quintessential mountain resort town, with a walkable downtown and great restaurants and shopping, and the temperatures in August were twenty degrees cooler than home. The only bad thing about Maplewood was that we eventually had to leave.
